‘Access Denied’ Error while Deleting the Files

Sometimes when trying to delete a particular file on Windows, you may get ‘Access denied’ error like the one stated below,

“File Access Denied: You need permission to perform this action”

The error clearly indicates that you are not able to delete the file as you do not have required permission. In order delete the file you need to have appropriate permissions. Each file or a folder may have a permission which determines who can access it and who cannot. Thus, make sure you are the owner of the file before deletion. Also, you can change the permission and then delete the file by following below-mentioned steps. In order to do so, you must be logged in as the administrator.

 Check the permission of the file and change it

  • Step 1: Simply right-click on the file and then choose Properties
  • Step 2: Navigate to Security tab
  • Step 3: Below the Group or user names, click on your name to identify the permissions that you have
  • Step 4: Then, click on Edit and select your name. Mark the check box for the permissions you require and then finally hit the OK button

Apart from this, the ‘Access denied’ error could occur during file deletion if the file is encrypted. The encrypted files are the ones that are secured from unauthorized access. Thus, you cannot perform a deletion on an encrypted file without the certificate used to encrypt it. In order to find out whether the file is encrypted you need to perform the below steps,

  • Right click on the file and then choose Properties
  • Then, navigate to General tab and choose Advanced. Here, check whether the option – Encrypt contents to secure data is marked.

If its marked then you need to procure the certificate from the person who created/encrypted the file. After decrypting it you will be able to delete the file. However, if you have accidentally deleted important Windows files, then you can use a software known as Recover. The application is exclusively designed to restore lost/deleted files from Windows

All About USB Type-C

Type-C is the latest development of the USB connector and it was introduced in 2014 officially. Nowadays on the devices this USB just appears and you can buy and use it. It was firstly supported by MacBook of Apple in 2015, but later it was supported by all kinds of smartphones, Windows PCs, docking stations, monitors, storage peripherals and many more. The USB Type-C is reversible as you can do in Lightning connecter of Apple, which means it can be plugged in any orientation.

apple-usb-type-c-macbook-700x337USB version 3.1 is associated with USB Type-C, even though it is officially different from USB Type-C. Transfer rates of 10 Gb/sec is supported by this and the 1996-era USB 1.0 spec is improved by 1,000x and at 12Mb/sec it was topped out.

Several alternative modes are supported by USB Type-C such as, it has the ability to carry power up to 100W and at 60Hz refresh rate it can drive up to two 4K displays. The great advantage of this is, along with the data transfer it allows a single connector to deliver power, video and data over a single line.

However there is a big difference between theory and practice. The main problem which arises is; all the USB Type-C connecters will not support all different capabilities. For an average person, it is impossible to figure out what all the things can be supported by USB Type-C equipped device.

Intel has developed a new technology called Thunderbolt 3.0. It uses the same connectors of USB Type-C and has different interface standards when compared to USB 3.1.

There are two previous versions of Thunderbolt (version 1 and 2), which uses the same connectors. But next to the connector, Thunderbolt 3.0 is marked by a lightning bolt that makes you to identify anyone easily.

The advantage of the Thunderbolt 3.0 is, it is a superset of USB 3.1, because a full USB 3.1 signals at 10 Gb/sec can be carried out and also it can carry 100W of power, PCIe 3.0, HDMI 2.0, Thunderbolt data connections at up to 40 Gb/sec, DisplayPort 1.2 video signals, all over a single connection of USB Type-C.

The only drawback in Thunderbolt 3 is you need a Thunderbolt controller chip; in order to support any device and it will cost more. Also, it requires active electronics inside the cables so you need to purchase full-bandwidth Thunderbolt 3 cables which are again expensive.
